    It's still snowing,raining/sleeting out here but it's always paradise in paradise. OK that's not the truth but it's what we want to be true and though it was sad to see "Poole" go that way it was actually kind of poetic, Camille's going was part of life GROWTH and maturity. It happens to all of us and besides the way that the Florence character stood up to Humphrey's dad, leaves it open for some playful miscummunication. That character is more supportive of the Humphrey character and still a blank slate sort of. THIS is what drives me nuts about n-----x, I can't have it NOW and I want my season 5 NOW! Of course the Dwayne Meyers character needs some growth because nobody, not even my 2 younger brothers could be that immature for that long. As for the other police on the have suspended believability (like traveling through space) I mean, even the small town I'm from has more than 4 cops and isn't as large, and God knows tourists do amazingly stupid stuff! You'd need at least 4or 6 more cops just for THEM! And tripping over some people's feet can be scary. Whatever happens next... I'm looking forward to it. Ohhhh by the way my wife is a Filippina get that it can be HOOOOOOOT down there. Still looking forward to it though.moreless

    Death in Paradise is probably the best crime series (drawing with Sherlock of cause) that I ever know. It is so well written that the plot seems very believable, Ben Miller plays DI Poole perfectly, he has that sudden sharpness that I think a character like Richard would need. I seriously considered stopping watching Death In Paradise or DIP.

    DI Richard Poole, Ben Miller, finds himself unwilling transferred to an island in the Caribbean that has a very French flare. Initially he is sent to investigate the murder of a colleague but his success brings him complications: what was to be a one off becomes a permanent mission. The lush surroundings and assistance by Camile Borday, Sara Martins, an undercover officer who now finds herself playing Watson to Pool's Holmes add to the fun. The writing is sharp and the supporting characters are excellent. But will DI Poole who retains his London suits and longs for a decent cuppa ever find contentment on what for anyone else would be the assignment of a lifetime. Don't bet on it.



    Unfortunately this series has gone off as Ben Miller has exited and Kris Marshall has replaced him as DI Humphrey Goodman. The chemistry between Miller and the supporting cast was brilliant. Miller's uptight DI Richard Poole was perfect as the fish out of water (or in water) who was determined to preserve his British props at all cost: wear a suit regardless of weather or situation and eschew all in favor of tea and all things British. Marshall's Goodman is a sort of mock British beach boy who is completely at home in an over sized beach shirt and "grooving" on the local life style. As a result the chemistry among the cast has gone completely awry and the show has lost all of its charm.moreless

    love,love this show--please dress Camille in a manner befitting a police seargant--she dresses like a beach person--she would never be taken seriously--could we get a better actress--we would so love that--the present Camille acts as though she is selling it for very little l'argent--again, love-love this show--dad was English and I think he bathed in a 3 piece wool worsted suit--mom was French and comported herself with finesse, and had she sold it-it would have been for a lot of l'argent..moreless
